PSL: Akpeyi Compares Kaizerchief Dressing Room To Cemetery
By Sampson Adedeji
Following the dwindling performance of the Kaizer Chiefs in the new South Africa premier league, Nigeria’s Super Eagles and Kaizerchief goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi, has compared their dressing room to cemetery, BSNSports.com.ng reports.
Amakhosi who challenged for the league title last season, is presently languishing in 14th position on the table having secured 1 win in 9 matches, gathering 7 points in the process.
The 33-year shot stopper was asked about the mood in the team dressing room and he compared it to cemetery.
“So far, we’ve not been happy with ourselves because we’ve been down. I’ll emphasize again from the beginning of the season,” Akpeyi told Chiefs’ media department.
Coming to the change room, we always made the change room a cemetery for ourselves where it is always cold. But, we keep telling ourselves that we need to change a different mentality into the next game and we’ve spoken to ourselves again in the one training session that we had to keep encouraging ourselves that we are going to come right in our next game.
“So, we’ve talked to ourselves and we try to understand our problems in each and every game that we’ve been playing but I think from the response of every single player that everything is coming right and we hope like I said there’s going to be a turnaround in the next game,” Akpeyi explained.
